I'm not crazy about tiny prints, or large ones for that matter. Detailing on dresses is much better managed by gentle draping which softens the silhouette. Plain fabrics but very good jewellery is usually best, except for feature scarves.

I once succumbed to a big flamboyant print and was told that it made me look like a settee, which I have to admit was true although I think I looked more like a armchair than an entire sofa.

It's not good to blend in with the curtains is it WOAR? The very young can get away with it somehow; Calfy can do a rhapsody in chintz, but it isn't the thing for matrons. Totally with you on the artful draping...someone should tell Lily it is all in the cutting.

I regret, Scrobs, that Victoria Wood so reminds me of my mother that I can't find her funny. Tragic, isn't it!

No, but then I pulled myself together.

Surely you 'draw' yourself together WOAR?

Curtains are 'drawn' aren't they? I'd say that pulling yourself was definitely not a good idea on this family blog...

I am shopping for curtains at the moment on ebay...there is quite a selection that could be turned into frocks for Lily...
